...stay at Port Pacific that is. Back in the 80's this resort's 9 storeys made it probably the tallest edifice in town. All white - it stood out among the rest. "Must stay there" I used to say. Now, in 2010, I've done exactly that. The structure doesn't look so tall; it's still white and with the welcome shown by the receptionists it has to be the better place in town to put head to pillow, laze, swim, balcony gaze, laze or even simply do nothing.
Basicly, the resort is a timeshare property though also takes in guests for one night or a few. The ground floor cafe is great for breakfast - particularly if you're not hauling food around on your travels or if it's raining. I can't understand why the cafe charges the same for cooked and continental - $9.50 for guests though more if one walks in from the street I suspect. Perhaps I was just unlucky.
Even if there's rain one can walk to the nearby shopping centre without getting too wet. Watch the crumbling road surface at the road crossing at any time. Looks as though the road surface is not in the Port priorities.
The resort is at the end of a shopping street - not far to most things needed for a great break. Plenty of cafes in the street and also those adjoining, so hunger pangs are a no-no. Excellent beaches a short ride, or a little longer walk, away. But back to the resort.
Everything is clean with spacious outdoor space on level 2 or on your very own bacony. My 1 x b/roomed apartment had two balconies - 1 for b/room and 1 for lounge - to look down on the said spacious outdoor space, feel tired watching the swimmers in the pool or lounge in the lounger.
Great place. Must stay there again.
Just a thought. The street rubbish collection is Tuesdays which will ensure you are awake.
